“Plenty of good ales but noisy.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

This is a former Tetley pub, which in it's hey day had an excellent reputation as a good place to drink. The place is basically as it was, the beer is still good and it appears to be busy at most times, but has been turned into a kind of sports bar. It would be nice if one area was left for those that didn't want to watch the telly.

“Friendly, Buzzing Local”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Was our local for quite a while. Always a friendly welcome from the owner, as well as the bar staff, and a real old-school feel to the whole place that you just don't get in these modern bars.

Highly recommended for a quite beer in the afternoon/early evening or a more "upbeat" get-together with friends and family later on. There's often live bands playing at the weekends so there's always a good atmosphere.

Only eaten there once, and the food was alright. Cheap and cheerful.

“It was ok”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Good selection of beer. Steak pie was supposed to be home made but was disappointing. The treacle sponge and custard made up for it. Service was very good with the barman offering to brink drinks to my table. Shame it was his penultimate night before starting a new job.
